Background/History:  Iemanga is a spirit who inhabits willing hosts to be able to act in the world.  Sandra Santos is the second to play host and is a member of the Brazilian super team Guarda National.


Personality/Motivation:  She is a protector of humankind.  She may be volatile and capricious, but the is firmly in the side of the humans!


Quote:  


Powers/Tactics:  A spirit of the water, she is more at home there, and will take fights to the water if possible.  But even above water she can fight effectively with water blasts, blinding sprays, and a drowning attack that can knock a target out.


Campaign Use:  


Appearance:  Sandra Santos is a beautiful model.  When Iemanga takes over she gains a more godly bearing but features remain similar.  She has light brown skin and hair, stands 189 cm and weighs 65 KG.  Her costume is a long purple dress!



 

 

 

So she's a classic water controller.  But also a member of the Orixas, something like the Voodoo Loas, but in Brazil.  A number of them are presented, enough to use as a basis for a number of origin stories.  

 

She's your bog standard goddess in a mortal world, but she is decent, so thumbs up.

So this will be a bit different but in the book they present what the rest of the GN look like.  

 

Crux:  Power Armour.  Use Power Corp (in a previous thread of mine) armour with a few extras.

 

Gigante:  Brick.  Take Big Thunder and get rid of the weather control and flight.

 

Napinguari:  They call it the Savage Ape archtype as he is a beast man.  Later I will have a NPC called Cromagnon who would be perfect.

 

Nestre Zumbi:  Another with ties to the Oxiras, this one of Iron.  He's a master of capoeria martial art, so basically a Martial Artist with a str 7 (Str 35 in Hero) and a Protection 3 (9/9 Force Field) in addition to all other things.

 

Membirita:  a paje, a mystic.  Use Lady Mamba with slightly different spell (NO zombies)

 

I like this and found I could make this team with little prep.  And they sound cool.  They have differing view points, but on the whole seem to work well.

That is what the Multi power  is for.  They default to the Desolid, but switch to the Dam Red on their attack.  Otherwise buying affect solid is SO EXPENSIVE!

How did I miss that? I thought they were permanently Deosolidified.

 

Okay, they're not as harmless as I thought.

I did too. However though having inherent on desolid which can be switched in a multi Power seems ....off? I don’t think that it’s a rules issue just unnesscery.

Background/History:  Pedro Reyes is your average teenager, doing things on a dare and being macho.  So when He accepted a dare to to hid in Machu Picchu overnight, he accepted immediately.  But under the mountain is a large extraterrestrial base from aliens who visited long ago.  But the AI still was active, looking for DNA of the aliens (Called Valcun) in humans the had interbred with locals.  Pedro was a match and was transported into the base.  After much exploring, he found a Valcun Battlesuit and decided to become a superhero calling himself Churi-Inti.

 

Personality/Motivation:  An alien Battlesuit and an alien base.  His main problems are he only has the basic abilities and cannot read or understand Valcun.  (the AI uses pictograms for now, until translations can occour)

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  Strength, flight, blasters and hefty armour.  As well he has a secret base and a powerful AI if only he can figure how to use them!

 

Campaign Use:  

 

Appearance:  A young Peruvian male black hair, brown eyes, he is 177 cm and 80 KG.  The battlesuit is humanoid with the elongated helmet but otherwise human features!



 

I like this idea.  Power armour, psionics and alien abilities!

Background/History:  Raul Supelveda was a truck driver for the state run oil company when he was attacked by eh villain Dr. Kanoche and his mummy followers.  There was an explosion and fire, but Raul emerged unscathed.  After driving off the villains he applied to be the state hero of Venezuela.  To this end he fights to protect the people and the revolution that Chavez has started.  El Bolivariano is there to keep the peace!

 

Personality/Motivation:  There are two forces in Raul.  One is to protect the people.  Even from himself.  He will never willingly hurt or endanger his people.  But also he is a total supporter of Chavez and his policies.  Even if they are unpopular, he believes that they will eventually succeed.  Non believers are just misguided!

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  Strong and tough, El Boliariano becomes extremely powerful when defending or saving innocents.

 

Campaign Use:  

 

Appearance:  A tall Venezuelan male 184 cm and 90 KG with black hair and brown eyes,  His costume is a Venezuelan flag of blue red and yellow with the stars arrayed on his chest!



 

 

 

So he's the classic conflicted (deluded) hero.  Is he a good man fighting for a bad cause, or is his cause just and he's being too lenient.  I will not comment here about the politics of the country, but it can be rich when done right!

Chapter Six  Northern Europe

 

So this encompasses the Scandinavian countries and Iceland, Britain and Ireland.  So a lot to cover.

 

So first a general threat that due to WW II there is a dearth of heroes and are thus vulnerable to the WORLD WIDE CONSPIRACY that seems to still be hidden.  In actuality there are enough hooks here to have many home grown heroes.  The implication is that the American heroes will have to come save the day.  PLEASE!

 

OK rant off.

 

Denmark.  Not many heroes or villains here, but there is a scientific research group looking into the super gene.  So there are hooks for good or ill.  

 

Finland.  So we get a Big Brain (I’ll let you figure it out) that is still trying what it is.  A giant monster haunting the Baltic.  Finally we get ties to the old myths with the sword of an ancient hero waiting to be found.  On the whole, cool.

 

Iceland is next, with a digital puzzle, and a Cold War warrior who hasn’t realized the end of his era.  (Given current happenings though, he may be brought back).

 

Next we sail into Norway and a descendant of the Vikings of old and the powers of the old gods.  She’s cool, but I felt the space could have been condensed to give more hooks.  I am sure there is more to Norway than just this.  She is majorly cool though!

 

Next to Norway is Sweden.  It has a drug problem, and one that has galactic implications.  Also the local Unison (UNTIL) base has suffered great losses recently, and the WWC is taking quiet advantage of the situation.  

 

Now we get to the Emerald Isle, Ireland.  Here we get three heroes, all mystically inclined (What no tech or science or mutants?)  They are all cool, but there could be so much more.

 

United Kingdom comes next.  First the Ministry of Powers, which is similar to the group in Brazil.  Then we get a corporation dealing in high tech / cutting edge technology.  Finally.  I would have liked a hero based on some of the tech here but some ideas are possible.  Next a national hero with ties to the past and a legacy.

Background/History:  Aesa Grimsdotter lead a charmed life.  By sixteen she was a better warrior than any in her tribe.  One day a pair of ravens called to her and she followed, heeding it as a sign.  Finally after hours of walking, she found a half buried rock,  Under it was a master crafted hammer.  and when she grabbed it all was made clear, she was one of the Valkyrie.  SHe wandered the battlefields of Europe for 1000 years, but then realized her clan was gone and she no longer had causes to fight for.  So she retreated into the woods to find her way.  And so it would have remained except for the Nazi war machine raiding her homeland.  So she fought.  She helped the Royal family escape to Britain and fought alongside Allied heroes through the war.  After, she became the protector of Norway and Northern Europe.  As a result the supervillain Ragnarok has become obsessed with humbling her and had joined (Evil Villain Agency) to defeat her.  But Skjaldmyjar, could be stronger than he thinks!

 

Personality/Motivation:  Loyalty to the people of Norway.  She takes her role as protector very seriously!

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  A flying viking with a hammer and the ability to control the weather.

 

Campaign Use:  

 

Appearance:  At 198 cm and 91 KG, her statuesque figure draws stares.  Add long blond hair and blue eyes.  Her costume looks like viking armour and she wields a golden war hammer!

 

 

 

 

 

She's a Thor copy, and a good one.  They did put a lot of hooks in her.  Especially another Thor type called Ragnarok who work for the WWC.  He want to beat her up some reason,(though they have not met) and so is going out of his way to antagonize her.  (which begs the question how can you be hidden when one of your agents is becoming so public?)

 

In fact I could see a call to Team Canada

 

Aesa, "Hello, Big Thunder?"  

BT, "Yes"

Aesa, "How would you like to beat up on the grandson of Thor?"

BT, "What do I get out of it?"

Aesa, "Well he's been besmirching the name of Thor, so the people who bring him to account, could get a nice reward from Odin"

BT, "Do you mind collateral damage?"

Aesa, "Nope"

Crack knuckles!

Aesa, "I take that as a YES!"

BT, "Indeed"

Background/History: A minor mage called Corma MacEogan was hungry for power. He had heard of artifacts left by the Fomorians and found some. First a dagger that nullified magic. Then a torc that made him invisible. Finally a black gem that glowed with black flames, that made him immortal. But he wanted more. He had heard of a lady named Britannia and so made his way to Roman England to steal her power. He managed to kill her, but the power eluded him. Certain she would manifest again, he waited and planned and stalked her through the ages. He was there in 1840's, and again in WW I, and hunted her again in WW II. In all cases she died far from him, or she eventually lost the powers as they went to a new vessel. And so he hunts again, certain this time he will kill her and gain her power!

Personality/Motivation: Craves power. The power of Britannia would make him one of the mightiest mages on the planet. Then....

Quote: 

Powers/Tactics: With the invisibility granted by the torc, Manteis can strike when he wants. Add an array of magic spells, a magic nullifying dagger and runes of protection that can stop a cannon shell, and you have a very dangerous opponent, especially magical ones!

Campaign Use: 

Appearance: Brown hair and eyes on a 184 cm 70 KG frame. He wears leather pants, with a torc around his neck, a dagger and a glowing black gem embedded in his chest!
 

 

WOW! This guy is scary. Especially if you happen to be a mystic yourself. He's got a fixation with Britannia right now, but could easily be ported to any local in his search for power. And he can attack when and where he feels most comfortable. So yeah, I can see uses for him, certainly in any game centered in the United Kingdom!

Background/History: The seventh son of an Irish family, Thomas lead a charmed life. Then the visions came. He could not control them, and they always showed tragedy and harm that he could do nothing to prevent. Only alcohol seemed to dull the visions and so he lost himself to the bottle. Until a vision came of a visit by a beautiful woman who told him she could help him control his visions, but he would then be beholden to her service as a protector of humanity. He's still not sure if it really happened, but since that night, he's gained control. But in addition is the urge to help those his visions touch. So Thomas Rhymer wander the world.

Personality/Motivation: Precognitive visions, the skills of a first rate PI and a catch of magic items and rituals. He's not in the big leagues, but he's more than competent.

Quote: 

Powers/Tactics: Research, get the right tools and get it done. He'll fight dirty if he has too, and he has a long list of people who owe him favours!

Campaign Use: 

Appearance: Red hair and green eyes on a 176 cm, 80 KG frame. He wears a black suit with a brown trenchcoat!

 

 

It John Const...almost. I do like this build. He's competent, and given time to prepare, can get some serious mojo going. My only complaint is a British magical NPC when England has so much tech and industry around. He's good, but I feel this section could have been so much more.

Background/History:  Sean McRoth was ever the outsider, going from one foster home to another.  Life was hard and bleak.  Then one family enrolled in an adventure holiday and he spent time hiking and kayaking and seeing nature.  On the last week they went spelunking.  And he found the CAVE, and the statue.  A voice in his head said he was now the Champion of Danu and that he would now be protector of the lands of the Tuatha de Danann.

 

Personality/Motivation:  Protect the land.  Not only from obvious threats but those hidden whether magical or man made.

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  Activate his stone powers, then wade in and smack his opponents with a BIG stone hammer.  It's not subtle, but it works!

 

Campaign Use:  

 

Appearance:  In normal form early 20's with black hair and brown eyes on a 180 cm 86 KG frame.  In stone form, he looks like a statue of himself, made of rock.



 

 

Well another mystical hero from the Emerald Isle.  No mutants here.  Science?  Naw that'll never work.  An alien?  You mean a Scotsman in Ireland?  Neve.... oh that type of alien.  Really!  

 

Now the character is cool, with some neat powers, but he's just another of the MANY earth based NPCs in this book!  He has good hooks and could make for a good PC.  I do like him!

Background/History:  Britannia seems to have always existed.  though she disappears for a time, soon she reappears, especially when the world needs a defender.  She was there in WW I and later WW II, and the Cold War.  But eventually the powers left Anne Pennington and she retired to a life of less grand pursuits.  But she kept an eye out as she knew, the mantle would return.  Then she saw the report of a young lady lifting rubble from and explosion site, carry victims to safety and helping at the aid station.  So she waited and soon she Was visited by Thomas Rhymer and Margaret Collins.  She knew Margaret was the latest incarnation of Britannia.  What threats the young medical student will face, she doesn't know, but the has called in favours to help prepare the woman for what is to come!

 

Personality/Motivation:  Legacy hero!

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  A flying brick, but can supplement it with light powers, including a light blast, a blinding flash and healing hands!

 

Campaign Use:  

 

Appearance:  Long blond hair and brown eyes on a 160 cm 57 KG frame.  Her costume is the Golden Lion on a modified Union Jack flag.

 

 

So another mystic NPC.  But if you're gonna do it, do it right.  Which this is.

 

A tonne of hooks, legacy, nasty hunted, all good.  

I like that she's a doctor, the thought of a healer with this level of power could lead to some cool role playing.  

 

Power wise, nice.  Ranged or HTH she can mix it up.  And she's just getting started.

Chapter Seven  The Mediterranean

 

So a lot of info in this section.

 

First Albania, a country struggling to find its place after decades of a controlled economy.  But it does have its own high flying protector.

 

Bosnia.  Same problems as Albania with added elements of religious violence.  And it has its own “Pyramids” holding their own secrets.  What will these secrets do to the country?

 

Croatia is a bit more stable, but again moving from its former economic system is proving a challenge.  But like Albania, it has a mysterious protector.  

 

Cyprus is next on our tour.  Still reeling from the wars between Greece and Turkey, it still is an island divided.  It doesn’t help that the WWC keeps the pot bubbling for its own ends.  

 

Gibraltar!  The Rock!  Links to the UK and a possible PC origin story.

 

The birthplace of western thought, Greece.  Shipping, tech development and of course Olympus.  It even has a template if you wish to make a descendant of the mighty ones.  

 

The glory of Italy comes next.  From a new hero to a nobility led mafia organisation, It has a fair bit to offer.  Also the Vatican seem to stick their noses in when people ask are superhuman actually human.  In fact a Vatican super team is not beyond reason and is given a possible reason!

 

Macedonia.  See Albania, Croatia etc.  As the birthplace of Alexander the Great, you can bet there is some sort of link to modern affairs.

 

Britain’s unsinkable aircraft carrier, Malta.  Not much is happening here.  But a link to a ghostly protector is mentioned.  

 

Montenegro has little going for it except the world’s greatest detective.  Seriously this guy is who Bat… I mean Raven goes to when they can’t figure a case.

 

Slovenia.  Same problems as Albania.  In addition, it seems as if dimensional incursions are more common here.  Possible villainy, or new heroes?

Background/History: No one knows who he is. He has said that he was born with the Republic of Albania, but is that literal or figurative. What is known is that he is a dedicated Albanian, proudly showing off the the Eagle of the flag in his very abilities. He has become a rallying point of the people, the Albanian Eagle!

Personality/Motivation: Responsibility to the country!

Quote: 

Powers/Tactics: Able to form great energy wings that allow him to fly, as well as surrounding him with a golden aura that protects him. Move bys are his specialty, but has developed a few special trick that use his speed to good effect.

Campaign Use: 

Appearance: 177 cm and 77 KG. Wears jeans and brown boots, a brown leather jacket with albanian style eagle wing on the front. Also a golden helmet that covers his hair and eyes!
 

 

 

I like him. A bit mysterious, but certainly on the side of the angels (pun intended)

Power wise the build works well. Plays up the strengths of a flyer. Add a couple of out of the box powers for some tactical advantages, and he's pretty competent.

Background/History:  A life of hardship.  George Kairos grew up on the streets, a wild child.  When his sister died in an accident, he joined the military, so her death would mean something,  and he lost both legs while on duty.  But an academic bug had been awakened and george used the benefits and scholarships to earn advanced degrees in engineering, bionics and robotics.  He even developed a set of replacement legs, but based on a horse motif.  When he learned that the military was going to take his research, he stole the only prototype.  Operating as the hero Prof. Chirion, eventually he and the government reached an agreement.  Now he still does research, but also helps Greece and Europe as its resident technical expert hero.

 

Personality/Motivation:  Another do gooder, spidey syndrome type.

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  Though his equine frame gives him speed, he mostly relies on the various weapons he has attached to pods on the frame to take out opposition.  Shoot and scoot.

 

Campaign Use:  

 

Appearance:  Without the frame he would stand about 181 cm and weighs 85 KG.  Of course the frame adds to this a bit.  His hair and beard are black and his eyes are brown!

 

 

 

Finally a tech based NPC from a land inundated with magical/ mystical phenomenon.  He's a breath of fresh air.  I like that it pays homage to the old tales, but adds some modern hooks.

 

Power wise, he's cool.  This is the guy who has a tool for every occasion.  And if he does not have it, he makes it.  Add some decent HTH (four legged move-bys) and he's decently neat!

Background/History: The darling of Italy, Stella D"Argentio is glamorous and full of light. The reality is different. She is actually Chiara d'Angelo, a bookish, bespectacled astronomer and astrophysicist. She loved the night sky, studied at university and when she saw what looked like a meteor hit, she had to investigate. There she found not a rock, but a glowing ball of energy, the seemed to fill her up and then vanished. She somehow is now a living star. And has appointed herself Italy's hero, between her work looking at the night sky, that is!

Personality/Motivation: Spidey Syndrome!

Quote: 

Powers/Tactics: An array of light based powers that allow her to fly, resist damage and generate light, from simple glow to blinding flash to a damaging blast!

Campaign Use: 

Appearance: 180 cms tall and 55 KG with long black hair and brown eyes. Her costume is a white bodysuit with black boots and gloves!


Another that I like. Italy is a modern society, so lets get modern people with powers. Now she is a little hokey in that she has the dowdy scientist type when not in costume, but Peter Parker did it for years. 

Power wise, the powers are cool. This books needs more dedicated blasters that fly above and provide air support. And she has a few options available to her. Nice!

What is this supposed to do?  make a blinding area?

 

In the book it is called ILLUMINATE (my bad for not naming it.)  No real description, but by the name I will guess she becomes a light source that can bring dayling levels of illumination to a 1 mile (1.6 KM) radius.

Background/History:  An ultra nationalist leader of the Carbonari,  Duca Nefando just want Italy for the Italians.  A very simple idea.  But he organized criminal enterprises to raise money, and committed crimes to support his cause.  Eventually he was caught and sent to a super powered prison.  But the power dampeners weakened and he was able to effect an escape.  Now he is back, re-organising his base.  Italy will be free.  But is it the freedom she really needs!

 

Personality/Motivation:  Those with power deserve to rule.

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  Control earth and rock at will.  Move earth and stone, blast foes, turn into living stone that has great strength and resistance.

 

Campaign Use:  

 

Appearance:  In human form 184 cm and 87 KG with black hair and beard and brown eye.  When resistance is active he gains a more earthen look with various shades of brown!  His costume looks like a roman legionaries, but very fancy and opulent looking ( he is a Duke after all)!


 

 

 

So he is a take off of Count Neferia from Marvel comics.  He feels that since he is of the nobility and he has power he is best fit to rule.  He has an element of noblesse oblige, but it really a cloud to hide his self serving nature.

 

Power wise, he's another earth controller ( wow is there no other element?) but he's a pwerful one.  I am no sure if he can take on a whole super team, but he can give them a run for their money, especially if he has a few agents, or super powered flunkies.  So despite the fact he's another earth controller, I do like him!

Chapter Eight  Western Europe

 

Well the first good idea here iis ECHO (European Coordinated Heroes Organization) an information network and warning system for heroes in Europe to get together for threats any one team can not handle on its own.  I could see a UN version of this!

 

Spain and Portugal.  Well this is a rich mine of NPC. We get a legacy villain of a former hero, an angel (literally) who is called upon when things are their most dire, a husband and wife team of battlesuit users called Sword and Shield, and a pair of bionic mercenaries who seem very nasty and have ties to a new WWC, this one that is very hidden and very dangerous.

 

Not finished, we get a representative from Fairy that can literally take on multiple teams (his first appearance forced the summoning of the angel mentioned above, if that gives you an idea) and a cyberpunk villain who looks strange but is more powerful than he looks.  We finish up with a solo hero who reminds me of Cheshire Cat from Champions and a spanish super team called Los Nuevos Invencibles.

 

France and Monaco.  So a history of french heroes, the event in 1961 that made them actively locate and recruit supers and the modern heroes of France (I Thought WW II killed all the heroes leaving the area vulnerable to the WWC?).  Some heroes include a street level hero in Paris, the French super team and an independants and two villains, one very nasty.  (as an aside where is the UK superteam?  Seriously!)
